Hi Bold Bakers!
The weather is starting to heat up in Los Angeles so my husband, Kevin, and I took a day off and headed to Disneyland. YES, we are those grown-ups who don’t have children and have season passes to Disneyland.
What Is Dole Whip?
I have a hit list of Disney’s favorite treats: turkey legs, Mickey Mouse ice cream bar, and caramel corn. On this trip I tried Dole Whip for the first time. Little did I know this is one of Disneyland’s most popular park treats. Dole Whip is a frozen whipped pineapple (similar to soft-serve) that is perfect when it is 90°F out and you have been queuing up most of the day.
Outside of Disneyland, Walt Disney World where you can get the dessert at Aloha Isle inside the Magic Kingdom, and the Dole plantation in Hawaii, there are only a few other places in the world where it is sold. So instead of looking for Dole Whip near you, try this homemade Dole Whip recipe.
While you can enjoy Dole Whip with Dole soft serve, which is a delicious pineapple soft serve, at Disneyland, you can use my recipe and definitely add on some vanilla ice cream. The fresh pineapple flavor goes perfectly with the ice cream.
Dole Whip Ingredients
While I loved this dessert, I discovered that many of the Dole Whip ingredients included stabilizers and lots of things I couldn’t pronounce. It didn’t spoil the fun, but it did make me think I can make something simple and impressive at home.
My Dole Whip recipe, or pineapple whip, is not only a delicious Summer treat, it requires just 2 ingredients. Simply pulse your frozen pineapple and coconut milk in a food processor or blender. You will have to stop a few times to move around the pineapple. When the mix is blended, enjoy it straight away!
Is Dole Whip Vegan?
Absolutely! My recipe uses dairy-free frozen desserts and it’s suitable for vegans.

Taste And Consistency Of Disney Dole Whip
The end result should be creamy and sweet. Basically, you can expect the perfect summertime drink. And if it tastes a bit chunky at all, just toss the drink back in the food processor.
